Winnie promoted to Seaman Apprentice

WINNIE: Navy Seaman Apprentice Paul M. Winnie, son of Pamela A. and David B. Winnie of Joppa, was recently promoted to his rank upon graduation from recruit training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

Winnie received the early promotion for outstanding performance during all phases of the training cycle. Training included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness.

The capstone event of boot camp is "Battle Stations," which gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. "Battle Stations" is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of honor, courage and commitment. Its distinctly "Navy" flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a sailor.

Winnie is a 2010 graduate of Joppatowne High School of Joppa.
